They gave some low percentage that makes up black players in the majors right now. Kinda funny I thought, 60 years ago they couldn't get it, and now they don't want in.
True.....reminds me of when Tiger started raking in the PGA and there were stories each week of inner city golf clubs starting. I don't really think that took off.
Anyway if they don't like the game, a bunch of pros wearing #42 isn't going to make them want to play either.
Baseball is boring to a majority of the public. I play baseball and it isn't even my favorite sport to watch, but I love playing it. There just going to have to face facts that thier game isn't that exciting to that demographic instead of shoving it down everyones throats and trying to force the issue.
